  • How can I get 2 points removed off my licensee from a speeding ticket that i got in November of last year?

    I got a speeding ticket 48 in a 35 and it was reduced to a 42 in a 35 (I think) but little did i know that it was going to put points on my licensee. I got the ticket in Charlotte NC if that matters. This is the only ticket I have and would like s...

    Zachary’s Answer

    Hire an attorney in Charlotte to file a Motion for Appropriate Relief. If granted, the case will be reopened and your attorney can re plead your matter to a non-moving violation if that is available for you. Best of luck.

  • My friends dwi got reduced to resisting an officer is that an unusual plea agreement?

    he ate kratom and had a bad reaction, got pulled over for speeding, and began cursing at cop then refused all sobriety tests. how come my dwis don't get reduced to anything but his did?

    Zachary’s Answer

    It sounds like the State may have determined that they could not prove the elements of DWI, but did feel as though they could prove Resist/Delay/Obstruct.

  • If I have a FTA. How do I go about getting another court date with out getting lock up

    Include background information that will enable lawyers to answer your question.

    Zachary’s Answer

    I would consult with an attorney in the county in which you were scheduled to appear in court. The procedures for striking FTA's vary from county to county, so it is always best to consult with a local attorney who knows the system.

  • I got cited in Boone, NC for driving at 79 in a 55 speed zone. What should I do?

    No prior offenses. First ticket. Reason - was passing a vehicle and had to speed up to avoid getting rear-ended. One year old license. 24 years old.

    Zachary’s Answer

    Speak to an attorney in Boone. The consequences are too severe to attempt to handle this on your own.

    Zachary’s Answer

    Your best bet is to hire an attorney in the county where you were cited for driving after consuming under 21. If there is a problem in the file, this attorney can help to fix it.

  • My son rec'd an underage drinking ticket. What might he expect in court, and what are the benefits of obtaining an attorney

    He was respectful of the policemen (undercover) and took responsibility for his actions.

    Zachary’s Answer

    Hiring an attorney can insure that the case is handled right the first time. All too often, I will have appointments scheduled with good folks who relied on bad advice and represented themselves without fully understanding the consequences of their actions. If you hire an attorney, your son will be prepared and you can rest assured that the case will be handled right the first time. Best of luck!

    Zachary’s Answer

    If you have hired an attorney to represent you, you should schedule an appointment with your attorney and discuss this issue. If your attorney knows that you are considering transferring to another school, he or she may change the manner in which your case is handled. Always keep your counsel fully informed of everything that is going on in your life.

    Zachary’s Answer

    Always be honest. If you explain to potential employers that you have been charged, but not convicted, it may help with the hiring process. Your first course of action needs to be retaining an attorney in Gastonia to fight for you. Best of luck!
